Let Your Monologue
Be Your Resistance
An anthology of socially conscious monologues, allowing participants to express themselves on topics such as race, gender, aging, politics etc. This production is meant as an acting exercise for actors who are self-starters seeking to improve their performance skills.
Participation is open to the community.
An innovative approach to performing the work of Mary Shelly, where the classic novel is performed in four acts with “color-blind & gender bending” casting with each act featuring a different pair of actors adopting the roles of the infamous monster and doctor.
The works of Shelly provide a unique challenge to an actor who may not be used to the highfalutin language of Shelly’s Victorian literature.
This production affords the actor an opportunity to play a role they may not normally be cast for, and deliver a quality performance while doing so.
An Anthology of
Shakespeare’s Wickedest Scenes,
Investigation into the works of William Shakespeare’s “wickedest” scenes; including Cleopatra, Julius Caesar, King Lear, Macbeth, The Merchant of Venice, Richard III, Titus Andronicus. Performances are not limited to the aforementioned works as members are free to decide what “wicked” scene they would like to perform.
This anthology showcase also serves as an intro to ACT’s “Acting Shakespeare” workshop providing the actor with the experience and confidence that is needed to perform the works of the Bard.
Members choose a partner to self-study a two-person scene from classic American stage.
The works of Edward Albee, Clifford Odets, Eugene O’Neil, Arthur Miller, Neil Simon, Tennessee Williams, John Steinbeck are investigated, and presented on stage and film.
This production is meant as a follow-up exercise to our monologue showcase, affording actors an opportunity to practice their craft, and collaborate with their theatrical peers.
Council of Elrond
